|We do have huge imaginations as the result of having to entertain ourselves during those pre TV years. I must have invented 50 ways to jump rope and maybe just as many ways to play marbles or jacks in winter and with a few card games thrown in for really bad weather.
And I painted with paint made from berries and boiled leaves, with feathers for brushes and I wrote stories with happy endings and characters named Boggard and Corkus and Penelope Jane. And I climbed to the top of many trees that became Noah's ark and I was the dove that was searching for land. And I was the bride in many weddings wearing my grandmother's priceless crochet tablecloth that covered me from head to to with a crown of sweet clover around my head. Naked as a jaybird beneath.
We are all products of our past no matter when our past took place.
Don'tcha just love it?
